Her brand name ‘Fold‘ is kind of a give away for the techniques used in creating these exquisite and mysterious bowl and lampshade designs, and New Zealander Rachel Young exhibits how the ancient Japanese paper-folding art of origami can be used to create functional pieces of daily use items as well. Using sheets of plastic in place of paper, Young adds a stunning durability to her designs all of which, BTW, are hand-folded in a grueling nine-month long process! Now that’s gotta be worth classifying these elegant designs as classics and heirloom pieces alone. Glad to see someone out there still believes in creating artwork with some good old fashioned grit and passion.
